benghazi attack any more than george w. bush was responsible for the 9/11 attacks or ronald reagan was responsible for the attacks on our marine barracks in beirut which killed over 200 marines. and frankly whether it was called a terrorist attack or not, in the immediate aftermath as far as i'm concerned is irrelevant. we just have to make sure that it never happens again, so that in the future our people are protected. that's what i want to get out of all of this. so, madam secretary, we commend you for accepting all of the arb recommendations and welcome your commitment to begin implementing them by the time you leave the department. even before the arb submitted its conclusions, the department moved to address certain shortcomings through its increased security proposal, vast majority of the funding for this proposal would come from funds previously appropriated for lower priority programs. and i hope congress will move without delay to give the department the transfer authority it needs to start applying these changes. it is important to remember that security is not a one off end

hospital monday. he has been having health issues. glad he's out of the hospital. but george w. bush, he was here last time, as was his father. we don't know why he's not going to be here. that is somewhat unusual. reportedly, bill clinton and jimmy carter will be here. that's obviously expected. another person who won't be here, mitt romney. that's not a slight, but it's kind of weird, because normally a challenger to a president is serving in some sort of official role in washington. they have a reason to be at the inauguration. mitt romney does not. so he won't be here. >> oh. come back and co anchor with me. >> all right. >> i like hanging with you. >> i like the recruitment. >> don't you guys love brianna? see? >> they don't know. [ laughter ] >> thanks, don. >> certainly a beautiful shot. it is perfect, the capitol behind us in the sunset. and it's great to be here with people. we're going to get out with the crowd. thank you, brianna keilar. the festivities, they're drawing people from all over the world, crowds from across washington. we're going to talk about security, and what'

president george w. bush fran townsend joins us now. welcome, fran. >> hi. >> we understand the united states has a plane in algeria and it's transporting americans and other westerners out of the country, some of those people are injured. do you know anything about this operation? >> no, carol. but, you know, what we're hearing is that the algerians couldn't coordinate with any of the foreign governments that had hostages on the ground. it's not all that surprising. it's not the way you want it to go if you're the american president or the british prime minister, but they acted very quickly, very swiftly, and very strongly with the lots of force. you know, you worry, that's the first question that comes to mind of those unaccounted for. there will be those who were killed in this operation, you know, not just bad guys, but inevitably when you launch this kind of military assault with this many people involved, you they never came. and for most of my career, there wasn't that much of that, two things changed. >> there wasn't that much of what? >> there wasn't that much out of competiti

presidents, both george w. bush and bill clinton. why do you make these assertions coming back from iran? did you have high-level meetings in which you were privy to information our state department is not privy to? >> well, we met with a range of people. we met with people from the government but students at the university. we were actually invited by the university of tehran. we met with students, professors. we met with a range of people in iran, and what we come back with is a sense that walking in the streets of tehran, going to the university, going into the marketplace, this is not a country that is on the brink of implosion, that sanctions are somehow going to cripple and force it to concede to american or any other demands. and this is something that when we did the research for our book, we found historically, we have seen american so-called iran experts predict literally since the founding of the republic of iran back in 1979, that this political order is on the brink of implosion or regime change. this is something coming back from our most recent trip to iran. just rein

in our lifetimes, richard nixon felt that when he had watergate. and certainly george w. bush must have felt the second term curse when in october of '0 , the economy tanked on him. you don't want to act like -- it's better to try to do one or two key things. with that said, i think this president like just the way eisenhower in his second term was able to talk about nasa and get nasa created, we might be able to do something with climate change, a large manhattan project like on a climate issue. he's not going to solve that, but there's a power to that and also travel second term. go to china. go to the middle east and try to become a big foreign policy president. he's getting us out of wars in iraq and afghanistan and eisenhower got us out of korea. i think ike's in the air these days. it's a -- eisenhower revision going on. >> douglas brinkley, thanks so much for coming in. >> the connections to the past and past presidents is always so fun it look at and so amazing how there are so many similarities. when we get back, we'll have the latest news of the day, of course, plus a beh

something, as a democrat, i took on george w. bush for many of the executive orders he put in place. there's a real debate to be had. but first step is seeing what the executive orders are. right now he's talking about administrative steps. he's also talking about doing much more aggressive sharing of mental health information. and much more aggressive background checks. there's a place to be had for that debate about those points. >> harry reid weighed in on the potential assault weapons ban. here's what he told one las vegas tv station. >> let's be realistic. in the senate we'll do what we think can get through the house. i'm not going to be going through a bunch of these gyrations just to say we've done something. >> president obama really wants to reinstate the assault weapons ban. would you be in favor of that? >> i've talked to tdianne feinstein many times about this. is it something that can pass the senate? maybe. is it something that can pass the house? i doubt it. >> so even harry reid is not so confident that any substantive gun properly law will be able to pass in the house. so w

fellow texan george w. bush but it could have meant that he didn't have to end up in the oprah chair at this point. and that's sat because a lot of people in my family who would have been willing to love lance armstrong no matter what because of the work he did on cancer, it was very painful to see last night, not because he cheated, but because he didn't quite get the equation of what he meant to people. and if he did, it's not only that he wouldn't have acted this way in the last several years, he would never have responded to the questions like he did last night. >> we're going to be watching part two on this interview with lance armstrong. now that he's come clean, could he face criminal charges for coming clean? we're going to take a look at what could be next for lance armstrong. >>> and after last night's interview, live strong gave the following statement. we at the live strong foundation are disappoint by the news that lance armstrong misled people during and after his cycling career, even us. in the wake of our disappointment, we also express our gratitude to lance as a surviv
